Celebrating Progress

This week I went to the Women's Enterprise Center to meet with fellow business owners.  We talked about our journeys in entrepreneurship.  It was wonderful to hear about how each of us had conquered some rather major hurdles.  One of my collegues was approved for multiple design patents which aid individuals facing mobility challenges.  When I heard the story of how the fashion she creates is literally helping people to have a life filled with one less obstacle (getting dressed), my heart was warmed.  Another one of the women is facing illness, new motherhood, and yet continues to be a powerhouse in her industry.  She is the recent recipient of the APEX Awards in Westchester County (Cyruscontracting.com).  I am happy to report that I have been very busy creating new designs for 2014.  Cover-ups here we come!
